Are you serving cheese at your Oscars party this weekend? Do you get annoyed when your guests jab their fingers at your lovely cheese board and say, "What's that one? How about that?"
Or heck - when you forget what cheeses you put out altogether?
Enter the slate cheese board. You can write little notes in chalk next to your cheeses and wipe them off later when all the cheese is gone.
The board pictured above is $24.95 from KegWorks. Here are a couple more options:
• VivaTerra has a board set that includes two knives and sells for $69.
• Crate & Barrel sells several sizes of slate cheese boards. They range in price from $9.95 to $24.95.
Here are a few of our favorite party cheeses:
• Nostrale di Elva
• Foglie Bergere
• Bartlett Blue
• Tomme de Chevre
